Tide gauge benchmarksA P.W.D. bronze plaque stamped 'TIDAL BM' set in concrete deck of jetty above the northern end of the boat landing.
Benchmark relationshipsTide Gauge Zero (TGZ) = 12.537m below TGBM. TGZ = 4.462m below Australian Height Datum (AHD).
Auxiliary benchmarksAdmiralty BM cut in face of large rock on south side of root of jetty. EP 2 - A bolt set in concrete deck beside the telephone box on the southern end of the Transit Shed, Broome jetty. B712 - A standard brass plaque set in concrete approx. 250m south of the root of the jetty. Station Hill - a brass plaque trig. Station located 9km north of TGBM.
